Aloha Nui Loa, Members of the General Plan Update Committee:

Thank you for your hard work and dedication.

A well-informed group of concerned citizens have worked very hard to prepare the attached suggestions – so that we can share them with you – and also continue to work to ensure that our local population will be able to live on their home Island.  We all know that land and homes are becoming unreachable for many – even to rent.  The next “Affordable Homes” will be sold in Hanamaulu in 2018 for the “HIGH  $ 400,000’s” !   Say what ?  L

So we have compiled sensible and achievable, comprehensive suggestions, which include urgent solutions, based on state-of-the-art techniques in development to actually build very affordable housing (drawn from research and real-world experiences, around the world).

We hope that you will objectively analyze these suggestions – and carefully reflect on our extreme need – and make your best efforts to insure that, moving forward, the County of Kaua’i completely changes the conversation and re-evaluates all current standards and regulations, in order to insure Kaua’i’s local population with truly affordable housing.

We would be honored if you will meet with us for a brain-storming session and would love to hear from you if you have suggestions to improve our work.

We are attaching a Word file and a PDF to make sure everyone can read it.  The PDF’s work better on cell phones.

Also please note the attached letters of support from businesses that will be deeply involved in affordable housing in the future.

Take good care.  And, again, thank you !
